I don't think anyone is proposing to remove the startup flags/ 
preferences like "path".  For the situation that you describe, it  
would be easy enough to collect those abstractions into a folder,  
then add that folder to the path when you need it.  [declare] and  
[classpath] allow you to do that in the patch itself.
